After making the rounds in Astoria, is George Clooney heading over to Ridgewood?
TriStar Productions announced that scenes for its upcoming financial thriller “Money Monster” starring Clooney and Julia Roberts will be filmed at Broadway Stages located at 1019 Irving Ave. from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday. It wasn’t known as to whether Clooney or Roberts were part of the shoot.
Directed by Academy Award-winner Jodie Foster, “Money Monster” tells the story of a television personality (Clooney) who is taken hostage while on the air.
Scenes will reportedly be filmed both inside and outside the studio, and parking on nearby streets will be prohibited as of 10 p.m. Thursday in order to accommodate production vehicles. The affected streets are Irving Avenue between Halsey and Covert streets and Covert Street between Wyckoff and Irving avenues.
Any vehicle found parked on these blocks after 10 p.m. will be towed away and relocated nearby; reportedly, there is no cost or penalty to the vehicles’ owners.
Money Monster previously filmed scenes at Kaufman Astoria Studios. Amid production, Clooney dined with Bill Murray at Taverna Kyclades, a Greek restaurant in Astoria; Murray had lunch there with director Sofia Coppola the previous day.
Exterior scenes for Money Monster were to be filmed today along Broadway in Astoria.
